Memorial of the Holocaust and its victims


Terezín (Theresienstadt) was built in 1790 hundreds by Habsburg Emperor Joseph II as a fortress to guard the northern approaches to the Bohemian heartlands. The small fortress, which forms part of the Terezín fortification system, became famous during WW II as a prison and place of punishment for both military and political prisoners.
As a concentration and transit camp and a ghetto, it was used for Jews from the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, and later also from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark and Slovakia.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide Dagmar was exceptional, and very knowledgeable. Terezin Concentration Camp was a real eye opener, left with many original artifacts we were able to understand what really happened under the Nazi regime. It's important to see and to keep the memory alive so these atrocities never happen again. I still can't believe there was such evil in the world. Thank you Dagmar for your guidance. I highly recommend this tour.
